FYI – There is a yellow jacket nest up behind the tennis court that is closer to the chapel. It is in the ground in the blueberry-like bushes. Please beware when looking for stray balls. Those who are allergic may want to bring their Epi pens to the court.
This year we will participate in virtual MacMahan Reads. The following are proposed books for discussion and dates.

One Goal by Amy BassThis is the inspiring story of the Lewiston soccer team that united Somali refugees and multi-generation Mainers in their quest for state, and ultimately, national glory. A timely story about overcoming the prejudices that divide us. A reviewer said, “At a time when America seems consumed by divisiveness and hate, along comes One Goal, a beautiful and important reminder that humanity’s strength is its togetherness.” –Jeff Pearlman–
Home of the Brave by Katherine Applegate – This story, told entirely in free verse, narrates the experience of a young boy Kek who has fled to the United States to escape the violence and upheaval in his native Sudan.

I have a neighbor in Georgetown who approached me this winter and I think she would be a great candidate if you’re looking for another house cleaning option.
If you are planning to come to your usual 9 am shift (choppers and peelers) or 10 am shift (stirrers and set-up) or would like to join one of the three shifts (9am, 10 am, 1 pm), we look forward to seeing you!
See you at the picnic on the 17th,
